A couple mitigating factors to bear in mind:

1--It sounds like these are build feedback models, not centerpieces, so probably wouldn't even need to finish paint them, just build them ASAP. He's also looking for kit feedback, not asking us to stretch it beyond kit form into a masterpiece

2--A V is a [heck] of a lot easier to paint/finish than a Ib

3--At $50 retail, how complex can this really be? It should be on par with a Saturn Press/Alway, roughly double a Zooch kit, nowhere near an Apogee. The main challenges I see to it are the tower and the fairing/fin units, and I think everyone knows what we think about building those towers already (though I'll sign up for another one just so I can continue to moan to Carl & the gang that I've built [lots] of towers/Saturns and still don't have one in my own fleet yet .

Oh, that's even better. I like to critique instructions when I build things. Haven't had to do it so much with Semroc's though.......
